Allendale Michigan is full of wildlife, and is also full of people which makes encounters more and more common. Some frequent questions we get are:

  • How much does wildlife removal cost?
  • Where do you set the traps?
  • What kind of bat for you use?
  • How do you keep from getting sprayed?
  • Have you ever been sprayed?
  • How do you remove skunk odor, tomato juice?
  • What do you do with the animal?

The cost of wildlife removal can truly range as there is no one set price that can meet the needs of hundreds of nuisance wildlife scenarios. After a phone consultation to determine your exact needs, we can better gauge a price for handing your issue. Trapping costs are typically are set price unless the area is unsafe or has limited access forcing us to use alternate or modified methods to trap the animals. Dead animal removal can also vary as animals tend to die in some very inaccessible places or will die right on your lawn. Size and disposal will also play a role. Animal proofing costs will vary depending on the location of the area if up high, if there are rocks, roots or bushes to deal with if on the ground and what the size of the area is that we are excluding to wildlife. As you can see, the cost of Allendale wildlife removal really is a tailored price to your exact needs.

With raccoons traps can be set on the roof, on the ground where they are gaining access and also inside the attic if need be. Each has its pros and cons. Setting up for squirrel removal or raccoon traps on the roof means it must be secured down by screwing to the roof. Of course, all holes are properly sealed after the trapping has been completed. Raccoon removal that is done inside an attic, can also bring its own set of issues. When a raccoon has been caught and needs to be brought down and through the home, it can potentially be messy. Raccoon urinate when they are afraid, they can usually have feces in the cage, can cut themselves on the steel, and loose hair and they rub against the cage. This means you can have blood, hair, urine and raccoon feces trailing into your home if the trap has not been contained tightly. For squirrels, attic traps work wonderful as they don’t really present all of the issue raccoons do. Traps set on the ground for raccoon where they are climbing up can be effective but they can also catch random animals that find the bait first. Skunk traps are set at the den site, which is most effective for quick capture.

Many are interested in the bait we use. For squirrels, peanut butter is usually the bait of choice as it has a strong odor and lasts quite a while. Raccoon will eat almost anything, so anything from cat food and sardines to marshmallows are used depending on the time of year and situation. Skunk are omnivores as well so cat food, sardines and carrots are all baits that are used to catch them.

We do get sprayed from time to time when providing Mice Removal and while there is no way to keep a skunk from spraying, patience and experience can calm a skunk’s nerves to keep it from spraying. When we are sprayed, baking soda, peroxide and dish soap is the only solution that breaks down all 3 molecules of skunk odor. Tomato juice is an internet tale.

Information About Squirrels Habitat – Where Do Squirrels Live?

According to the BBC, squirrels live on every continent on the planet (except Antarctica and Australia) which means that they find just about every climate suitable and are highly adaptable. This of course also means that squirrels in different climates have varying preferences as far as their choice of living arrangements go. Information about squirrels habitats according to some of the different species includes:

1. Tree Squirrels

Tree squirrels are probably the most common squirrels and as their name suggests, their preferred habitat is wooded areas such as forests. They generally live in the crooks of trees or holes and hollows which are used to make their nests and store food for winter. These types of squirrels, located in the Northern Hemisphere, are likely to spend an extended period of time in their chosen homes during the winter months due to the fact that squirrels hibernate.

2. Ground Squirrels

Just like tree squirrels, ground squirrels also prefer a wooded habitat even though they don’t live in the trees. These squirrels burrow beneath the ground to create a series of tunnels that they live in. They use the borrows for nesting and food storage. Ground squirrels located in colder climates also hibernate and will spend most of the winter months below ground. In fact, most squirrels that live in burrows will only leave their tunnels in order to forage for food which can primarily be found in wooded areas and therefore their preference for a habitat that is full of trees to provide them with the nuts, seeds and fruit that make up the bulk of their diet.

3. Flying Squirrels

Flying squirrels also make their homes in the crooks and hollows of trees and therefore also prefer to live in a wooded habitat. Another reason that the woods are preferable is because these squirrels prefer to travel from treetop to treetop rather than on the ground. Most of their dietary needs can also be found in the tops of the trees giving them little to no reason to ever go to ground.

As man-made structures begin to invade wooded areas, squirrels adapt and will make their homes in gardens, yards and homes. Due to their preference for height, squirrels will prefer to take up residence in attics or ceilings. Unfortunately, they can become quite a nuisance and are considered pests that can legally be eradicated or removed.

However, there are some regulations in place that govern the safe and humane removal of squirrels that have entered a house or man-made structure. Keeping in mind that squirrels do carry some diseases that can be transmitted to man and also carry parasites that can be hazardous to human health, removal of the little offending creatures is considered to be a priority.

Due to these risks and hazards associated with squirrels, it is however advisable to opt for professional pest control solutions rather than attempting to handle the critters yourself. Information about squirrels habitat is also critical to taking preventative measures such as removing or cutting back trees that can become home to the creatures.
